Use LaTeX. The icon should look like this: $$\Sigma \;\;\text{LaTeX}$$.

Fractions: \dfrac{numerator}{denominator}. Example: \dfrac{3}{5} $$\rightarrow \dfrac{3}{5}$$.

Example:
\boxed{\displaystyle\int^1_0 f(x) \mathbb dx = \lim_{n\rightarrow \infty}\sum^{n}_{k=0}\dfrac{1}{n}f\left(\dfrac{k}{n}\right)}

$$\boxed{\displaystyle\int^1_0 f(x) \mathbb dx = \lim_{n\rightarrow \infty}\sum^{n}_{k=0}\dfrac{1}{n}f\left(\dfrac{k}{n}\right)}$$.

For more about how to write math expressions in LaTeX, please refer to my LaTeX post.

For advanced LaTeX skills, refer to this much older post by Melody: https://web2.0calc.com/questions/latex
